Our Auxiliary Boards

Auxiliary Boards

Each of Northwestern Settlement’s Auxiliary Boards provide financial and hands-on support to the Settlement. Most of the Boards focus their work on specific Settlement programs, while also providing a stronger connection to the community the Settlement serves. Much like the variety of programs offered by the Settlement, there is a variety of Boards and activities to get involved in. Read about each board below to learn more, or contact our Board Relations and Development Associate, Allison Marino, at amarino@nush.org for more information about getting involved.
Evanston Woman’s Board

Each May, the Summer Edition focuses on the delightful boutiques of Hubbard Woods.

There are many ways for members to get involved at the Settlement, but especially important to the Board is volunteering at Rowe Elementary SchoolS
